Great Taste, Low Calorie

Week 45:  Add a Tab This challenge was a no-brainer for me . . . tee-hee!  A quick, simple sketch and colored pencils!  I just know you all are going to be inventive with your “Tabs” too!  Have a great week!

Falling Leaves

Week 44:  Incorporate leaves onto your page in a creative way This challenge had me baffled for about a week as I looked around my Florida neighborhood at all of the Palm Trees and GREEN leaves.  Don’t get me wrong, it is beautiful and well what’s not to love about Florida?  But sometimes I just want to feel the seasons …

Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny

Week 41:  Polka Dots After last week’s challenge, I was relieved to have an idea that popped into my head instantly!  I sketched a little clothesline and hung my teeny bikini out to dry! Okay, I know you know where I’m going with this!  I added watercolor and lettering . . . Now if I could only fit into that …

Comfort Zone

Week 40:  Paint or color with three colors you never use My first thought when I read this challenge was, “I don’t want to do this”  But then, hey, it’s not a challenge if it’s easy, right?  And I do like a challenge!  I knew instantly what colors I would use.  For some reason, I rarely use purple!  I don’t …

Smash Style!

Week 30:  Add Receipts, Labels, Business Cards. . . Smash Style I had fun all this week collecting and gathering items to “smash” into my planner, especially since I traveled to Baton Rouge, Louisiana and got to meet up with and spend the day in St. Francisville with my bestie, Kim – who I don’t get to see nearly enough!  …

Up!

Week 29: Make a Wish List This week’s challenge was to make a wish list so I decided to make a list of all the places I still want to go in this world!  I’m blessed to be able to travel a lot, but there is so much more I want to see!  And since taking a hot-air balloon trip …

Games People Play

Week 27:  Use a crossword puzzle, soduku, or word game Guilty.  I admit it.  I am a “Words with Friends” addict.  And I’m competitive too.  Just ask my family – I’m ruthless at word games – I’m not proud of it!  For this week’s challenge I decided to make myself a teeny tiny little ‘Words with Friends’ game board and …

Comfort

Week 26 – Add a Bible Verse that Inspires You It was a hard week. It’s funny, sometimes when you are looking for that perfect inspiration, IT finds you. Next week will be better, I know. Just a quick sketch tonight. To remind me. Next week will be better. “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed …
